April 05, 2012 – Voyage of a Viking by Tim Marks
The world today is filled with people who are enslaved by debt and riddled with fear that their situations will never improve because of the failing economy. More marriages seem to fail these days than the ones that last. Children all over are growing up in broken homes with absentee parents, wondering who will love them and take the time to play with them and be involved in their lives. The tragedies and struggles that we humans face can sometimes seem overwhelming and diminish our confidence so far that we feel unloved and doubt whether we are smart enough, talented enough, or good enough to be successful and enjoy peace and happiness in our lives. Many harden their hearts and try to shut down their emotions to avoid the pain, or they turn to drugs and alcohol to try to find some kind of relief. But these kinds of self-preservation methods do not bring peace, joy, or freedom. The pain is only compounded as relationships, finances, health, and self-respect suffer from the addictions and the lack of heart-felt emotion.
How does one overcome and get to a place of joy, hope, and success? Tim Marks, nationally acclaimed speaker, activist, mentor, and co-founder of LIFE, knows. In his new book Voyage of a Viking, Marks details his dramatic personal achievement in the face of adversity with a little dose of humor. He candidly shares his personal tragedies and triumphs in the hope that others can learn from his mistakes and gain wisdom from the lessons he has learned in life as he has worked to sand off the rough edges of his Viking personality in order to become a man of grace. Laugh with him, cry with him, and get inspired by his personal success to reach for your own dreams and goals.
You can live the life you have always wanted! Let Tim Marks help you start the journey with Voyage of a Viking. He started out as a poor, dyslexic child from a broken family who was failing in school and engrossed in habits such as drinking and smoking in order to avoid the pain and fit in with the cool kids. Now he is a happily married man of faith and a dedicated father of four with a highly successful leadership business that has helped thousands of families rekindle the dreams, hope, and joy in their lives. Now that is a success story worthy of emulation!
